Demark’s Oscar entry for Best International Feature Film, and winner of over 20 film awards, including the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, FLEE uncovers a remarkable true story.

Revealing his story for the first time to director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, his close friend and high-school classmate, Amin recounts the extraordinary journey he undertook as a child refugee from Afghanistan to Denmark. Made with a striking blend of animation, intimate interviews between Jonas and Amin, ‘80s music and archive footage, Flee details an unforgettable story of self-discovery and relentless will to survive.
